The Quiet Suffering of Americans

I see Tax Games are afoot in the Senate and the House again.  The Senate today passed the Middle Class Tax Cut, hopelessly knowing the House will veto it. I have NEVER imagined a Congress that could be so arrogant relative to the needs/lives of their people.

 The middle class is bearing the burdens of the policies of the 'unfunded wars' of the last ten years, and also those shiny tax cuts. We did not want these wars and they have helped bring this country to its knees.  There are vast numbers of people suffering quietly, feeling ashamed to be hungry, in denial about their financial condition, poor, and wondering how everything changed. 

If you wish to read the rest of this article, please follow this link ... the reason for this is that the site invited me to submit this piece for their "American Pundit" contest, and one of the rules is that the article not be found in its' entirety anywhere else.  So please follow on over -- it's a great space and I will operate at both locations. As soon as I can figure out how to link to my site on AllVoices! UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Usually I will be found at both places, as I love my little blog.

Thanks, Julie
